To make money with this system, decide a topic of interest and create a Facebook page on it. Update it frequently and promote it very well to get more likes.

If they accept, they pay per the number of likes you have and it usually just a post or two. Just imagine how much you would earn advertising for many businesses in a month.
You should however avoid spamming your fans and only accept ads that align with your page subject to enable maximum results.
